The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Lazy Disruption …

Right now, in supermarkets across super-conservative Singapore, is this …

Yep … that’s a real thing.

The product originates from the UK but – unsurprisingly – had it’s advertising banned there on the grounds of indecency.

[Which is why I’m kind of scared what they mean by 100% natural]

The fact it has been able to run this sort of thing in Singapore highlights the authorities there are either ultra-naive or super-broadminded.

Given the Red Dot Nation is not renowned for its liberalness – despite things like this getting through the system – I assume the introduction of a hoverboard in the visual convinced the powers-that-be that this was a genuine ad for a brand celebrating an active lifestyle.

Idiots.

But not quite as idiotic as the immature boys/expat wankers who’ll buy the stuff thinking they’re being witty. On the positive, the moment they’re seen with a can, they’ll be more hated than a Nottingham Forest owner. And trust me, that’s seriously hated.

Looking at how much make up that guy holding the can has on, advertising pussy is entirely appropriate.

Those Singaporeans are filthy bastards aren’t they. I assume this started after you had lived there Rob.

How long till we see a mainstream launch of a brand called “Fuck It”?

Comment by Pete

Almost there. I say fuck it to lots of brands already.

I think lazy marketing would be a more appropriate title for this post than lazy disruption. Horrible and ridiculous.

“False advertising. No one with a hover board has ever.”
